Bullshit! The Bullshetahmeter Technique - Demystifying News Source ValiditySubmitted by Chris Dishwashski on Fri, 03/28/2014 - 19:08
note: the following is an excerpt from a much longer article. Please don't dwell on PCR - he's not the subject of the article.

..."Having spent an unpardonable amount of time absorbing writings and videos in my process of awakening, I've distilled my Bullshetahmeter down to two criteria; a pair of knobs I mentally fine-tune in assessing the particular validity of any given article or video. These dials are found deeply embedded in the limbic system. Lab research (and it wasn't cheap, let me tell you!) has placed it specifically within the amygdala region.
The first dial addresses (or tunes, if you will) an assessment that can best be distilled in the word 'Coverage'. A prime example is had in the case of Paul Craig Roberts. Upon a time, PCR was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy under Ronnie Reagan. He also served as a consultant to the DoD and U.S. Dept. of Commerce. Back in the day, prior to his awakening, (or more likely, his growing a pair) he received numerous national and international awards for his work in economics. Even France found him worthy of the Legion of Honor. When PCR sang the party line with the rest of the psychopaths in charge, he was a regular on national media outlets. Fast forward to now. Since he started speaking truthfully, he is no longer welcome on any of these shows or platforms. His opinions have been ridiculed by those in charge and major media. Only sites like Activist Post and others like-minded will post his writings now. I always read him when I see his postings. Another fine feature of the Bullshetahmeter is the auto reload data function. Once the Bullshetahmeter has made an assessment, it remains there until such time as the device/program (and this is the incredible part) reassesses the data and computes a new course of action relevant to an established protocol.
From this one example, it's easy to see how much data can be drawn. A. PCR was once an insider and viewed on mainstream media. B. When he stopped 'going along to get along' he was banished. So, broadly extrapolated, one can deduce that any media outlet not willing to post his writing is part of the problem, not the solution. Conversely, any media site that is willing to post is part of the solution, not the problem."...
